Here’s a quick guide to the cast of Girl Vs. Monster and the characters they played. Since the late 1990s, the Disney Channel has been churning out kid-friendly fantasy-horror TV movies that usually air during the Halloween season with films like Mom’s Got A Date With A Vampire, Don’t Look Under The Bed and the Halloweentown series becoming staple spooky viewing for many a millennial kid. In 2012, the Disney Channel added another family-friendly, slightly spooky film to its catalog in the form of Girl Vs. Monster.

Girl Vs. Monster is directed by Stuart Gillard, whose other directing credits include fellow Disney Channel movies like The Scream Team and Twitches. Befittingly set during Halloween, the movie follows a teenage girl named Skylar Lewis who discovers she comes from a long line of monster hunters and unwittingly unleashes a bunch of monsters that feed on her and her friends’ fears. Girl Vs. Monster also features three songs on its soundtrack – ‘Fearless,’ ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me’ and ‘Had Me @ Hello’ – with the latter track winning Best Crush Song at the 2013 Radio Disney Music Awards.


Alongside Olivia Holt, Girl Vs. Monster boasted a cast brimming with fellow teen talents who would go on to star in a host of major TV shows. Read on for a who’s who guide to the Girl Vs. Monster cast.
